In 2011, the Town of Wallace, lead by a core group of leaders, brought the “Strawberry Festival” back to Wallace after 50 years. Each year, the Carolina Strawberry Festival has grown bigger and better. Even better now that we’ll be there! ;] Here is the festival map.

We will see you there surround by delicious strawberries. :]

Poplar Grove Fabulous Farmer’s Market

Farmers' MarketMushpa + Mensa is super excited to be back at Poplar Grove. One of our all time favorite gigs! Come see us and all the other amazing vendors at an awesome place. We will be facing painting as well, which not to brag we are pretty fantastical at. :] Food trucks, music, fun!

The Farmers’ Market at Poplar Grove was established to provide a retail outlet for local growers and producers to sell their goods directly to consumers. The market strives to promote local farmers & the use of local products, educate consumers on conservation practices, and provide the local community an opportunity to get to know their farmer, their baker, their artisan maker!

One of the special qualities of a Farmers’ Market is the interaction with the farmers growing and producing fresh produce, landscaping & bedding plants, or meeting herbalists growing herbs and mixing scented salves and oils, bakers creating homemade cookies and desserts, and artisans making handmade soaps, cutting boards, jewelry, and accessories for home, hearth and garden.

Within the Gullah Geechee Corridor, the grounds and outbuildings of Poplar Grove are open and free to the public on market day. Located on Highway 17 and easily accessible from the I-140 Bypass, there is plenty of free parking, picnic tables, and a playground.  Visit The Stables, Basket Gallery, Gift Shop, and exhibits with information on blacksmithing, peanuts, weaving and slavery.  Adjacent, and operated independently from Poplar Grove, is the Abbey Nature Preserve, with trails open and free to the public year-round.

FloydFest Freedom 2017

Ladies and gentlemen, Mushpa + Mensa are beyond stoked to loose our FloydFest virginity this year.  We’ve heard so many great things!

Here’s some 411 on the fest.

FloydFest, which began in 2002, is a world music and arts festival held annually near Floyd, Virginia, in the Blue Ridge Mountains just off the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Taking place on an 80-acre Blue Ridge Mountain venue of unparalleled beauty, FloydFest is camping for a five-day outdoor celebration of roots music, outdoor adventure, and community and is unlike any other music festival you’ll find on the summer roster. With nine unique stages ranging from the hand-hewn timber-framed Dreaming Creek Main Stage and Streamline Stage at Hill Holler to the homey Appalachian-style Workshop Porch to the Backstage VIP Pub, FloydFest is hands down the finest roots music showcase event anywhere, with a non-commercial family-friendly feel, and sincere Southern hospitality.

In addition to music, the festival features local arts and crafts, dance workshops, morning yoga lessons, story telling, poetry readings, and a “Children’s Universe” tent.

It’s music, magic, mountains, and just a touch of mayhem.
